Located just down the street from the Ramp House, another landmark project by MJ Neal Architects in South Austin, this three-story contemporary and its neighbor are both noteworthy designs by award-winning local firm. Along with the house directly to its east, it was part what MJ Neal called the “Twin Peaks” project, built in 2001 and featured in Texas Architect magazine.
The 1,655-square-foot home is certainly a modern showpiece and captures the essence of the designer’s vision. Its three levels emphasize verticality and sculptural elements while harvesting light that fills its airy, open spaces.
The house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a library, an office, a screened-in porch, and a second-floor deck. The backyard opens to an alley from which its two-car carport can be accessed via motorized gate. Listed by Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty, the home is located at 613 Live Oak Street in Bouldin Creek.
